He is not light on the Democrats but, he does focus mainly on GOP politics. He also discusses the interview from his side in terms of the Maddow interview. I suggest anyone who reads this and comes away with "He's too extreme" are more likely than not partisan by nature. This book is a big mirror and he points it at both parties as well as himself. He and Jack Hunter have written a memorable book in such a short period of time. I can't wait till they develop the next book.
Paul spends the majority of time dealing with his campaign and relations with the Tea Party. His view of the Tea Party is quite different from mine, however I feel confident that his view is based on his actual experience with them. In my case, I can't agree with him on how the Tea Party functions or what they stand for, but that may buttress his argument that they are very independent. While he sees people of all colors and persuasions in the Tea Party in Kentucky, my local Tea Party has sent out several racist e-mails and is as white as the driven snow. Also, the Tea Parties form my area share information, events, e-mails and member lists, where in Paul's Kentucky, apparently they maintain almost total independence.
In dealing with the issues, as he sees them, he does not provide a lot of depth to his positions. He does correct some misinformation from the campaign and I believe he is less radical than what was presented in the media, however, he has a bad habit of labeling things as "unconstitutional" without stating why he believes that or what Articles he believes are being violated. He quote heavily from Jefferson as a source, however Jefferson was one of the few leaders who did not attend the convention and have input into the document. That tends to leave what Jefferson says as what Jefferson believes, not what the framers meant.Read more ›
I'm not disappointed I purchased this book but I'd hesitate to recommend it to someone else because he doesn't always outline his solutions. I bought the book solely to learn about his details for fixing healthcare in the US - on press shows he stresses the same point that because of a free market laser eye surgery costs have decreased - sure enough this is the same example of free market healthcare he includes in the book. But there's a SLIGHT problem...laser eye surgery is ELECTIVE surgery...so how does the free market economy handle a heart attack? Cancer? Diabetes? Bad Back? Erectile Dysfunction? I have my thoughts on how this would work but it would take a significant push by the Federal government to get us there (you'd need to completely overhaul the insurance industry) and I'm wondering how Senator Paul who believes in limited Federal government would accomplish this.Read more ›
